Dmitri Wayne Nell, aka B-Boy Meaty, was crowned SA champion at the Red Bull BC One South Africa Cypher 2017. The bboy scene is alive and well in South Africa thanks to the first generation BBoys who laid the foundations since 1981/'82. We hope to interview Meaty before he leaves for world finals in Amsterdam later this year.

We've been tripping off the Invisble Scratch Pickles album since last year with all the tracks being featured on Beat Bangaz Radio. Always on the cutting edge of all things turntablism ISP discovers various themes with this album.
The music video for one of the tracks, 'Fresh Out of Fucks' created by Jason Goldwatch, is a mishmash of clips of women breastfeeding, the creation of a prosthetic ear, a series of numbers, and women with underarm hair. It’s a product of the two guys with Alchemist and Mix Master Mike messing around with some Cold Cut Crew material so what do you expect? And in order for ISP to tour with the video, Goldwatch created a 44:44 length version which plays behind the crew during their live sets. There are plenty of phallic objects in this video so be weary of the company you keep when you watch it.
'The Greatest X' features production from Large Professor, The Alchemist, Evidence, Statik Selektah, Nottz, Apollo Brown, Black Milk, MoSS, Buckwild, Streetrunner, Audible Doctor, The Arciptype and more, plus appearances from R.A. The Rugged Man, Jared Evan, Termanology, Planet Asia, Rasco, Phat Kat, Guilty Simpson, Akrobatik, Reef the Lost Cauze, Dutch Rebelle, Edo G, King Magnetic and others.

We always love receiving music from our brothers and sisters in other parts of our lovely continent and this one submitted by Teck Zilla is currently in rotation here on Beat Bangaz Radio..It’s all Str8Buttah Productions affair in the new video for summery jam “MP3,” which finds Nigerian rappers Pryse, Phlow, and Mz Kiss and singer Pasha going in over grooving production from Nigerian born producer Teck-Zilla.
The track inspired by a quote from the legendary Chuck D: “The Super emcee is the one who can spit in more than two languages.” And you can watch as Pryse, Phlow, and Mz Kiss go full-on Super emcee when they storm the track with a unique blend of English, Pidgin English, and Yoruba.
Not only is it an incredible display of their talents, but it also showcases that Hip-Hop is indeed a worldwide culture. That’s not even taking into account Pasha’s dancehall vocals on the hook and Teck’s infectious instrumental, both of which are smooth complements to the three rapper’s verses. Capturing the energy of “MP3” on film is RCube, another member of the crazy-talented Str8Buttah crew whose vision and edits bring it all together.
Check out the visuals, which serves as a bonus cut off Phlow’s currently untitled new project, which is due out this year—stay tuned!
